The Midnight Top is a glamorous piece that reminds us of glimmering stars dancing in the sky on a warm summer night. Cotton Supreme DK and Cotton Gold are held together throughout the pattern to create just the right amount of sparkle. This versatile piece easily transitions from day to night – wear it as a swim cover-up, casual top, or with an evening dress for a bit of elegance. Additional touches including exposed seams and fringed hemline make this piece even more special.
